Afro DZ ak is a a multi-instrumentalist MC and trumpet maestro from Boston who uses music, hip-hop and spoken-word poetry to promote positive social change. He’ll be playing a special free show in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 29, at the weekly Planet Rock hosted by Subsuelo DJ Canyon Cody and Captain Planet at The Virgil in Silverlake. Planet Rock is one of my favorite Saturday night events for great music and dancing with no cover and this special edition is not to be missed…it’s the only place in LA he is appearing! Check out his music below including his latest video and song Memories Live On, a poignant story of a gay teen driven to suicide. It’s a very appropriate topic today as I head to West Hollywood to celebrate today’s historic Supreme Court decisions in favor of LGBTQ rights to marriage equality. More love, less hate – let’s come together this Saturday and groove to the man’s positive messages and musical vibes.
This is just one of the many awesome events happening around LA and featured in my weekly events list…want more fun things to do in LA?
